Inspired by the nearby port's automated cargo cranes and lighthouse, the artist created a 30' 4 7/8" interactive sculpture called Mojo. Located on the corner of W. 7th St. and Centre St., Mojo reacts to its environment. During the bright daylight hours, Mojo presents itself as an elegant sculpture. However, as light levels decrease throughout the day, Mojo comes to life. Through its playful usage of surveillance technology, Mojo tracks passersby with its robotic arm, at times beaming a light on randomly selected pedestrians following them with its light. Christian Moeller's sculpture activates its nearby public space, forging connections with passersby and creating a sense of community.
